About Simply Candles & Gifts

Who We Are


Hi friends! I'm Susie, candle-pourer behind Simply Candles & Gifts. Alongside me in running this wonderful shop is my handsome hubby, Austin, and our sweet baby girl, Emily. We're determined to change the world, one candle at a time. 

Simply Candles & Gifts began as a dream after making candles as Christmas gifts in 2013. After doing a few local sales and selling in a local store, a simple dream has turned into a passion to provide the highest quality, hand-poured soy candles for your home.  

We're committed to helping others create a warm home environment. We're also here to make gift giving as meaningful and easy as possible. 

What we do


Simply Candles & Gifts makes and curates wonderful quality gifts that we would give to our loved ones and hope you do the same. We take pride in the products offered in our store and hope they are a joy to give as well as to receive. 

Our candles are made in Lynchburg, Virginia with ingredients that are phthalate free such as 100% soy wax, cotton wicks, and non-toxic fine fragrance oils and essential oils. Though soy candles may show imperfections on the outside, they produce a clean lasting burn that you can feel good about having in your home. 

How We Help

Without our local (and online) community, we would not be in business. One way that we have given back is to support local non-profits with our soy candle sales. A portion of all purchases (online and table sales) supports a nonprofit that we are sponsoring that month. Previous organizations have included Freedom 4/24, Lynchburg Daily Bread, and the Blue Ridge Pregnancy Center.
